New public meeting

A third public meeting on the proposed regulations for the rockfish seasons has been scheduled for March 20 in the Lecture Hall at Essex Community College. The meeting will start at 7 p.m.

A Department of Natural Resources spokesman said the additional meeting was called after a state legislator told DNR officials that Baltimore County residents had not been properly informed of two public meetings last week.

Conowingo rockfish

According to the Department of Natural Resources, special bait restrictions will remain in effect from June 15 through Sept. 15 immediately below Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River. Anglers will be allowed to keep legal-sized rockfish (striped bass) as long as bait restrictions are adhered to and each fish is caught during an open season. Under proposed season dates, that would include June 15-30 and Sept. 1-15.

Junior duck stamp contest

The deadline for entering the third annual Maryland Federal Junior Duck Stamp Contest is March 15. The contest is open to all Maryland students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Entry forms and contest rules are available from Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission's Division of Interpretation and Conservation. Call (301) 627-2270.

Spring turkey season

The first week of spring hunting season for bearded wild turkeys at Tuckahoe State Park in Caroline County will be open only to hunters who have made reservations through the park office. Permits for the balance of the April 18-May 16 season will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Call (410) 634-2810.
